The Joys Of Being An Earthie

I'm sat here in my living room looking out onto my back garden and to the woodlands which are directly behind me and it makes my heart flutter a little and even though it is raining I want to go barefoot out into those woods and converse with the energy that is there.

I've been a Earth spirit since a baby, I've loved crawling on the grass and picking daisies to roaming the mountain that surrounded my childhood home.  I've always felt a deep connection to Mother Earth and am at my most content when walking through woods as I can pick up on the trees energies, the smell of moss that lingers in the air and watching for the little woodland creatures as they scurry away with their food finds.

I feel so blessed to live where I do because in any direction and in no time at all I am able to walk through wooded areas, along a beautiful and secluded canal where I can watch dragonflies, spot pretty flowers pushing their way up through the earth, collect nuts from the tress and elderflowers.  This gives me so much joy and I feel as one with my surroundings, it is as though Mother Earth shares her energy with me as I immerse myself in her greenery.

For some of you, you might feel a deep connection with water, being up in the air or around fire....which are you connected to......

Superb..there is a lot of similarity in our posts today. My theme for this week is Nature, and today UBC entry reflects similar thoughts as yours.

Rachel, although your posts are about spirituality, faeries and other mystical topics...I truly enjoy the way you talk about nature. There's a beautiful quality to it :)

Rachel Curtis said...

I love the earth too. The view from my windows is full of tall trees and fields, where horses roam and birds peck the soil. I remember walking in the woods opposite, although I can no longer do it. The feeling you get from pressing your body close to a tree is amazing.

Rachel Curtis said...

Your window view sounds amazing Francene....I love tree hugging too :) x

Mine is definitely water. I love looking at it and just being in it. Just recently I was talking to my husband about wanting to get back into swimming once our finances are back in order. Just walking past one makes me feel so much happier. I also love hearing the sound of waves crashing against the rocks.

I can also feel a connection to fire, but I think that is more to do with the heat over anything else.

Rachel Curtis said...

Sounds like you definitely have a connection to water, I want to go to the sea now and listen to the waves crashing against the rocks :) hope you are able to get back to your swimming soon x

Hmm, I am not sure if I can pick just one. I have conversations with both the trees and the moon, but I get the most excited when I see the crescent moon (as if she's come back to me, LOL). But I also love candles & sunshine, and feel a bit gloomy myself when the sun is hiding. Some day, I want to live near the water, but it's call does not seem as strong right now as the moon's and the trees.

It is hard to choose lol ooh and I love the moon, so beautiful to look at x
